photosynthesis, respiration, enzymes are 3 chapters that always come up

in my opinion, it's better to aim for a h6, it won't be too difficult at all. these chapters make up approx 80% of the paper: characteristics of life + scientific method food ecology enzymes, respiration, photosynthesis dna + genetics cell structure, function & division keep practising past exam papers because they repeat constantly. if you study these chapters really well you could get well above a h6. gl.

aim for the H6, you never know you might surprise yourself !! best of luck !!! :)

knowing the the chapters @phant0m mentioned and ALL EXPERIMENTS really well should guarantee you at least a H6 if not better

learning the first topic of chapters (food, ecology, etc.) can give you 15% alone and the food chapter overlaps with home ec. Stick with the higher-level one too, a majority of the stuff is on both papers but if you think you could spend time better somewhere else drop it. Best of luck :)

just by practising papers and writing down the naswers from the marking schemes you will get a H6 or higher. its all repetitive so go for the papers over the book for study of the main chapters

@yenrenanu It is important to study the chapters photosynthesis, respiration, enzymes, food, nutrition and the digestive system, genetics, plant science chapters and human reproduction as well as all the systems. It is important to learn the key definations. Learn all the experiments off by heart as the experiment question that appear in section B make up 15% of the exam. Practice the short questions and the long questions as section C makes up 60% of the exam. I hope that this helps as I know what it is like to study a science based subject outside of school. I studied Chemistry outside of school. It was difficult. However, I did receive a H4 in chemistry in my LC in 2020 which I was really happy with as I found Chemistry to be a stressful subject. It did help studying chemistry for the chapters that certain chemistry topics overlap with in Biology and Home Economics. I had originally intended to study pharmacy or food science at college but as a result of chemistry being very stressful I ended up chosing to study history at university. If you would like to offer you any advice or help with biology please email me at christinelowry83@gmail.com. In the LC for Biology I received a H2. I am currently a university student studying history at Trinity.
